Oh, My Golly. It's A Brand New Duran Duran Song Leak For "Skin Diver"

If we're all to just glance at the upper half of this week's Top 10, it's a pretty eclectic group of pop singles. Unfortunately, the lower half is so tragic, you just want to shake whoever the guy is at Billboard that does up the chart, give him lots of money and say, "Now put this song here, this one there and go make it look pretty!"

Oh, wait. Maybe that's what's going on already.

Moving on, XO emailed a tip that "Skin Diver," one of the new Duran Duran/Timbaland songs, leaked. Why not check it out? (You can also play "Falling Down," their new single, written by Justin Timberlake.)

I kinda dig it. Of course, Timbaland inserted his vanity vocals, but that was a given. The eerie synths give it just the right DD charm.

The U.S. Top 10:

1. "Beautiful Girls" - Sean Kingston *4 weeks*
2. "Big Girls Don't Cry" - Fergie
3. "The Way I Are" - Timbaland feat. Keri Hilson & D.O.E.
4. "Hey There Delilah" - Plain White T's
5. "Stronger" - Kanye West
6. "Crank That (Soulja Boy)" - Soulja Boy
7. "Bartender" - T-Pain feat. Akon
8. "Umbrella" - Rihanna feat. Jay-Z
9. "Make Me Better" - Fabolous feat. Ne-Yo
10. "A Bay Bay" - Hurricane Chris

    Agreed, I'm liking it and it has reaffirmed my faith in how good the material he's done with Madonna is going to be.

    On a side note, you recently listened to Robert Miles' "One & One." I will now do the same.

    Still not sick of "The Way I Are" yet--and it's so much better than "Give It To Me."

    Thanks for the link to listen to the Duran Duran track!
